PANJIM: The Election Commission (Youth Congress elections) has served a notice to Valanka Alemao, the daughter of PWD Minister Churchill Alemao for using her father’s position to influence voters for the youth Congress elections.
It has been learnt that Valanka has been personally using her father’s position to threaten the voters to vote for her by force. She has been threatening the voters if they do now vote for her then the consequences will be dire.
In the meantime it has also been learnt that Churchill Alemao has sent his goondas out to threaten the voters and to force them to vote for valanka. At the same time he has promised a huge amount of money if they vote for Valanka.
Valanka is vying for the top post along with GPYC former vice-president Pratima Coutinho. The elections are scheduled for July 23 and 24.
Prakash Joshi, Chief Election officer - Youth Congress Election Commission also served notices to another candidate Jitesh Kamat for his outbursts against returning officers.  In the notice to Valanka, the CEO has asked her to reply as to why she should not be debarred from contesting Youth Congress elections.
The charges against Valanka are
• That she has used her father’s position to influence voters.
• Valanka has taken support of the chief minister, party president and the legislators to win elections.
• Had a meeting with politicians, against rules, at a starred hotel in Margao.
It is reliably learnt that the CEO’s action has come in wake of complaint filed by Jitesh Kamat, who had also mailed a CC to Rahul Gandhi. The CEO has also served notices to Jitesh for his outbursts against the LROs and the ZRO (returning officers).
He has been asked to reply as to why he should also not be debarred from contesting elections. Mr Joshi when contacted confirmed the notices were served but refused to elaborate further. “I can only say we have served the notice but I will be able to comment only tomorrow on the issue after I receive the replies,” he said.
On the deadline for replies, he said, “Still there is time I cannot say now.” Zonal Returning officer Sumit Khanna, however, refused to comment on the matter so did GPCC president Subash Shirodkar, who only said “you ask Valanka, I am not her PA to know this.”  Efforts to contact Valanka for her comments on the issue proved futile. Jitesh on the other hand claimed he has not received any notice yet.

 Yesterday Churchill's BIWI NO 1, phones Pratima requesting her to withdraw in favour of her Daughter. Know what she said ? " baie  tum ek mugeli dhuvuch koxi"
to which Pratima replied " Ek duvek dukoun dusrek koxi kortai?"

If Valanka does not get elected to GPYC, or debarred from the election proccess....there is still hope....the Goan Swindon Association.
The GSA is currently in dis-array.No one knows who the President is. It is like a TWO HEADED animal.

However I am sure the Swindon Goans are much wiser, and in due course, will elect a President who will serve them well.....And I am sure it will never  be Valanka

Santan Sousa has proved himself to be a classic  idiot & a spoilsport.
